CREATION is a drama concerning Charles Darwin's relationship with his devoutly religious wife.

Language

There is infrequent mild bad language ('bugger').

Theme

The film deals with the effect the death of Darwin's daughter had on his family, and there are scenes in which she lies gravely ill in bed. There are also scenes in which a bird falls from its nest and is subsequently consumed by insects and a slug, and a scene in which a foetus opens its mouth to scream. The first scene illustrates Darwin's theories on the cycle of life, whilst the second scene indicates his declining mental health.

The film also contains a couple of scenes of natural child nudity.
